Postdoc position in malignant hematopoiesis in the Porse Group - Denmark  

Company managed [?] Still accepting applications

Posted on : 28 April 2017

Project Description

Our research/The group
  • Research in the Porse group is focused on elucidating mechanisms governing normal and malignant hematopoiesis with special emphasis on the behaviour of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) during adult hematopoiesis and leukemic stem cells (LSCs) in acute myeloid leukemia. 
  • To this end, we employ mouse models of human AML, mouse knock-out lines of putative HSC/LSC regulators, primary patient material and a broad range of bioinformatics tools. We have also conducted a number of shRNA-based in vivo screens for genes involved in tumor maintenance and identified a number of novel potential oncogenes and tumor suppressors which will be studied in future projects.


Project/The research project(s)
The project deals with the impact of an epigenetic regulator on leukemic stem cell behavior in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia
